Constructing and Printing Crinkle Surfaces

My obsession with digital alternative surfaces led me to create these crinkled surfaces for
printing. There is a slim line between being able to print these substrates and not. If the
crinkles are too deep they quickly make the surface to thick. My advice- start with thin paper if
you have a regular printer and it you have an art printer that will print a decent thickness, just
don’t over due the crinkle part if you use canvas and thicker surfaces. When starting with this
technique I used lightweight canvas From there I tested silk paper, a thin handmade paper and
thin smooth kozo paper. The canvas definitely is the thickest when finished and needs a printer
that will print thicker surfaces.
